After the FBI seized the 27 boxes of classified documents stuffed in the basement of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort-residence, someone released the order. And the names of the FBI agents who were involved in the take down were printed on that document. As a result, a Mercer County Pennsylvania man threatened to murder them.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a federal complaint Monday in Pittsburgh. The man responded with this post on Gab, according to The Pittsburgh Post Gazette:
‘[C]ome and get me you piece of [expletive] feds, am going to [expletive] slaughter you.’
A domestic terrorism tracking group also sent the FBI a tip that someone calling himself “BlankFocus” was posting threats on Gab that read:
‘If you work for the FBI then you deserve to die.’
Adam Bies wrote “a series of posts on August 11,” KTVZ reported:
‘According to court documents, Bies, who posted under the username “BlankFocus,” repeatedly threatened to kill FBI agents. In a series of posts on August 11 — three days after the search — Bies allegedly wrote that he was willing to die in order to harm as many FBI agents as possible.’
Then, the FBI filed an “emergency request for information.” Gab, the site where the man was posting, also provided information on Adam Campbell, the fictional name of Adam Bies. The man said he used an alias “so that corporate Murica’ can’t google me out of a job.”
The FBI followed his IP address back to his home in rural Mercer County. Bies’ Gab chats showed a diversity of threats, the affidavit showed:
‘I’ll shoot an SS officer in the head just as quick as I’d shoot a KGB officer in the head.Keep that in mind. There are plenty of other letters in the alphabet. Police state scum are police state scum. Period.’
Bies, 46, also named Gab CEO Andrew Torba in his threats, because he was upset over an article about FBI Director Christopher Wray. It wrote about threats coming in to the FBI after the search of Mar-a-Lago. Bies threatened Gab for “warning that it will remove chats containing threats.”
Agents apprehended Bies and charged him in U.S. District Court with “influencing, impeding or retaliating against federal law officers.” Bies remained in jail prior to his appearance before a federal magistrate judge.
The FBI affidavit indicated that the man “compared the FBI to the Nazi SS and the Soviet-era KGB and said everyone at the FBI, from agents to janitors, should be killed:”
‘My only goal is to kill more of them before I drop. I will not spend one second of my life in their custody.’
Bies sent another post:
‘HEY FEDS. We the people cannot WAIT to water the trees of liberty with your blood. I’ll be waiting for you to kick down my door.’
The man wrote a post about a message he received from Gab:
‘[Gab] just gave me an account warning today for saying that a bunch of child moleseting (sic) [expletives] at the FBI should be put down.’
Then, he called the Gab CEO a “piece of [expletive].” He continued sending the company a dare “go ahead and ban me.”
